A new poll of Denver voters by marijuana advocates shows a public with little enthusiasm for the spread of marijuana consumption to bars and clubs.
Although advocates emphasize that total support for the initiative was 56 percent, in fact, more voters strongly oppose the initiative (31%) than strongly support it (20%). Voter passion is opposed to the initiative.
Also note the 56 percent support is much weaker than the 66 percent recreational marijuana passed by in Denver in 2012.
The marijuana industry may find out Denver voters are cautious toward expanding the city’s reputation as a center for sales and consumption.
